Hello everyone, I hope your holidays have been enjoyable!

I have a few questions relating to the DDS and DMD suffixes. Are these basically the same thing but your school does a different accreditation? Or are DDS and DMD dentists completely different? I have been wondering this because I am applying to a few schools, and some are DDS and some are DMD. I want to be sure that I make the right choice for me when applying, and I dont want to waste my time or money (or the school's for that matter) applying if it is something that wouldn't interest me.

Do DMD and DDS schools go for the same amount of time?

Are the requirements the same?

Are the careers the same or do they approach dentistry at completely different levels?

I know I should know the answer to this, but I feel there are probably others that wonder the same thing.

Thanks in advance!
